This is another case where you need to dig deeper and not believe the cover 
story.  Google the org. mentioned.  Here is the link to the Feline Practioners 
Vaccine Guidelines.
They actually recommend giving all kittens the FeLV vaccine after 1st testing 
Sorry you stumbled across such mis-informtaion

I don't have enough authority/knowlegde to say I disagree with the last 
statement "cats over the age of 16 wks are virtually inmune to FeLV"..I'd say I 
wished, because I have seen cats older than 3 yrs to get infected. 
Whether it was the cat was sick and wasn't obvious even to an ELISA(wich I had 
been told it can give false FIV results but is accurate on FeLV) I don't know. 

Being on the rescue & adopt out position, I've to get my adoptables tested and 
vaccinated. It'd be wonderful if everybody would know the facts
